First-Round Lines

NoCo by 5.5
PSU by 10.5
SUU by 14.5

I'd personally take the favorites to cover for all three.

NoCo wins by 18. With Kennedy Nicholas out, Sac had literally no answer for Alisha Davis. I'm guessing this marks the end of the Bunky Harkleroad era in Sacramento.

PSU up big on EWU, late-2Q

SUU only beats Weber by 4. :? Not sure where SUU's offense from last week went.

Quarterfinal Lines

MSU by 13.5
Montana by 3.5
Idaho by 7.5
ISU by 5.5

I'd personally take all the favorites to cover except Idaho.

I think you're being rather generous towards PSU. :D :thumb:

Although we did manage a split against Idaho during the season. I'll be surprised if we do cover.

MSU only beat NoCo by 5 and only shot 36%. Maybe they're more vulnerable than I thought…

PSU isn't as good as last year, but they do seem to be over their 7-game losing streak.

Begs the question, if Idaho and Idaho State play each other, does Boise even care?

Cats hadn't played a game that "Counted" since they won the conference on 2/22... almost 3 weeks of waiting to play a game that matters is a LONG time. (Yes I know every game matters, but they had the conference wrapped up after CAT/griz in Bozeman).

The Cats were still shooting better in those lame-duck games than they did Tuesday, though.

It's not just MSU, either. Idaho couldn't hit the broad side of a barn in their win over PSU.
